Hi Everyone.

I got help off you guys when choosing my new guitar (Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus) and was told that I'd need a new amp as I wouldn't get the best out of my guitar through the yamaha GA-15 i'm using. You were right! There isn't much difference in tone between that and my pacifica when played through that amp.

Well, the time for a new amp has come, I attempt to/would like to play music by GNR, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Velvet Revolver, Black Sabbath, Metallica, AC/DC, Nirvana, Oasis and a bit of blues and some pop... - mainly so I can play something people I know can recognise! lol

I'm looking for an amp for practising in my room, jamming and perhaps gigging when I get better as I've only been playing for 6/7 months so far but am enjoying every minute of it!

I don't have any pedals so built in effects would be nice.

I've got a budget of about the £200 mark.

Many Many Thanks,

yaffle

Not really, because he said he has £200, not £100, and you can't gig with 15 watts of SS.

Peavey Valveking?

Why is it that every time I see this in an amp thread, it seems like outright fellation?

Anyway, if the Laney VC15 is voiced like a Marshall, go for it. Unfortunately, they are quite few and far between in the states, so I've not seen one.

For what you've listed, the Vox will do great. I assume that much money would get you an AD50VT. You can get most of your tones that you want from three or four of the eleven channels, just so you know. And don't use the autowah. Unless you like sounding like a duck.
